The French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard first worked with the composer Pierre Boulez when, at age 19, he joined Mr. Boulez's chamber orchestra Ensemble Intercontemporain. Decades later-Mr. Boulez is fast approaching his 90th birthday-Mr. Aimard has become a respected interpreter of the composer. During Monday's all-Boulez program, Mr. Aimard and frequent collaborator pianist Tamara Stefanovich jointly play the complete published solo piano works of Mr. Boulez, in addition to "Structures, livre II," for two pianos. Aimard plays New York's Zankel Hall tonight.
